Objects hold history. They're evocative of stories stamped in time. As part of The Washington Post's coverage of the Smithsonian's new National Museum of African American History and Culture, people submitted dozens of objects that make up their own lived experiences of black history, creating a "people's museum" of personal objects, family photos and more. The Historically Black podcast brings those objects and their stories to life through interviews, archival sound and music. The Washington Post and APM Reports are proud to collaborate in presenting these rich personal histories, along with hosts Keegan-Michael Key, Roxane Gay, Issa Rae and Another Round hosts Heben Nigatu and Tracy Clayton.

Where Did This Pod Go?!

I started listening from its debut and loved this pod right away. I keep checking back, hoping for new episodes. What happened?! What do we need to do to get this going again?!

Please bring this back!

I just happened on this podcast and it was amazing. I learned so much in the few episodes and would love to hear more stories. As a black, female millennial, it’s imperative to hear this oral history told and learn more about my ancestry. I will definitely pass this podcast along to friends.

Seriously, consider bringing it back 😊.
